Book Description:

Sometimes being happily married and completely content is not at all what it seems.

That is what 35 year old, happily married mother of two, Alexis Summers finds out when decides it is time to return to work. After being a stay-at-home Mum for the past nine years, Alexis now realises a complete career change is just what she needs.

She becomes a Concierge Attendant in a prestigious hotel in Melbourne working for the owner of the hotel, Bryce Clark. He resides in the penthouse, is extremely hot and is a man who always gets what he wants—and what he wants is Alexis.  She does a relatively good job resisting Bryce at first, but the undeniable chemistry, sexual tension and playfulness between the two of them is intense.   He has copious amounts of money, sex appeal and above all, is a genuinely nice guy. Bryce has been waiting for his one true love to come along and he is positive that one true love is Alexis.

There is one problem; she is happily married to Rick, and no matter how strong her feelings are for Bryce, she is adamant she will not cheat. She draws a line in the sand but finds it increasingly hard not to cross. Will she succumb to Temptation?

Excerpt 2

I was speechless and utterly craving what he had just declared. He was smirking at me, which I would normally find completely irritating but also endearing. This time, however, his smirk made me mad and more to the point, extremely pissed off. I placed both my hands on his chest and shoved him. He stumbled back and nearly fell on his arse.
“You can’t just say that and smirk at me, Bryce. What am I supposed to do with that confession? What do you want me to do?” I stepped off the ladder and stomped like a child to the elevator door. He followed and stood with his back against the wall facing me. He had his hands in his trouser pockets and remained quite casual and relaxed.
“I know you feel it, Alexis. You want me between your legs just as badly as I want to be there.”
“Bryce, stop it! You are so far out of line it’s not funny.”
He started to laugh, so I turned to face him. Is he for real? He is so infuriating—yet adorable—yet maddening—yet delectable. Oh my god, he is turning me into a freaking yo-yo. I slapped him across the face. He rubbed his cheek and smiled at me impressively. I tried to keep my furious expression, but I was very slowly losing the battle with the muscles in my face. He laughed again and I followed suit.
“I hate you right now.” I was beyond being polite and stepping on eggshells where our employer/employee relationship was concerned. He had overstepped that mark well and truly.
“No, you don’t.”
“Yes, I do.” It dawned on me suddenly, that the elevator was not moving. “Bryce, I need to go home before I punch you. Press the bloody button.” He laughed, but this time he was mocking me. “Oh, you don’t think I can punch you?” I shot him a challenging look; he shook his head. “Go on, kiss me again, I dare you.”
He was on me like a flash, pushing me hard up against the wall. He ravaged my mouth with his own, sending pure intense passion through his tongue onto mine. I aggressively ran my hands through his hair as he lifted me up, allowing me to wrap my legs around his waist. No, No, No! Stop it, Alexis. What did you say that for, and where is this punch you so boldly threatened him with? I released my legs and punched him in the arm. I tried to get in a second blow, but he caught my fist and brought my arm down, spinning me around and causing me to be cross-armed across my chest and perfectly secured to his abdomen. He held me there for a few seconds then whispered softly into my ear, his breath hot and paralysing.
“You gave me permission, Alexis. You can’t then attack me, not that I’d call that an attack. In fact, you need a lot of instruction on attack and self-defence. So, on Monday morning you are coming to my self-defence class. Wear some clothes you don’t mind working up a sweat in.”
“Let me go, I need to go home to my husband.” I hissed at him. He released me and hit the button to his apartment. The doors opened and I stepped out. I grabbed my bag and turned to meet his face, he was leaning up against the entryway wall where we had first kissed earlier that day. It felt like that kiss had happened days ago, but I guess that was because so much had happened in such a short space of time, and I hadn’t really let it all settle in yet. Thank god the next day was Saturday, I wanted the entire weekend to recover from the head fuck that the day had been.
I began to talk, but he cut me off. “I can’t help myself, Alexis. are like no one I have ever met, and I want you.”
“You can’t have me Bryce, I’m taken.”
He stared deep into my eyes. “I don’t believe anything is absolute. Things change, people change.Circumstances change.”

On the outside, Liberty Davis appeared to have it all…a loving family, a tight knit circle of friends, and a bright future ahead of her. Everything was perfect. That is until her brother tragically took his own life, turning her whole world upside down.

Left to pick up the pieces of her broken family, Liberty is faced with focusing all of her attention on helping her parents cope with the loss of their son, while putting her own life on the back burner. But what no one seems to realize is that she is just as broken inside.

Now, four years later, twenty year old Liberty is taking back the reins of her life. She leaves behind everything she’s ever known, hoping to make a fresh start…one where she isn’t faced with the constant reminder that her brother is nothing more than faded memory. What she didn’t expect to find along the way was Shayne.

When she learns that Shayne knows all too well what it feels like to lose someone you love, she finds that they have a lot more in common than just a physical attraction.

Book Release Blitz and Giveaway for Two Roads by L.M. Augustine

  TITLE: Two Roads
AUTHOR: L.M. Augustine 
  GENRE: Young Adult 

The only person poetry-loving Cali Monroe hates more than herself is Logan Waters, the geeky kid who lives in the dorm building next to hers. Ever since Cali's parents told her she would amount to nothing, she has felt entirely inadequate. Friendless and alone, she takes on the mean girl role in hopes it will make her feel better--and Logan serves as the perfect target. He infuriates her with his obnoxiously long lashes, his all too perfect dimpled smile, and his complete lack of personality outside of his intelligence. It doesn't hurt that he's part of the reason her brother is dead, either. So Cali hates him, and he returns the favor. Thus, their prank-filled, insult-driven rivalry is born, and torturing Logan quickly becomes the highlight of her life. But when Cali's parents set them up on a blind date, she begins to realize Logan might not be as boring as she always thought. He shares her love of poetry, takes a sadistic pleasure in making fun of crepes, and he makes her blush when he calls her smile pretty. And hey, maybe those long lashes of his aren't that obnoxious after all… Two Roads is New Adult Romance about finding love, standing out, and learning to embrace who you are. It contains some language and mild sexual content.



L.M. Augustine is a YA romance author who is obsessed with writing about dorky teenagers, love, and happy endings. He currently lives in New England, where he spends far too much time reading books and screaming at his computer, and he believes that the solution to the world’s problems can be found in chocolate cake.

About Book

Skye Whitcomb is running from her troubles, and where better to run than Europe? Fresh out of college, she makes quick plans with her best friend Paige and hops on a plane.

Of course, nothing ever goes as planned—at least not for her. First, Paige has to bail, and Skye’s left to travel alone. Then she meets sweet and sexy Asher Benedict in Paris, and sparks fly after a night together on the train to Rome. He’s all kinds of perfect for her, but the timing couldn’t be worse since she was running from the altar when she left—so the last thing she wants right now is a relationship. 
But Skye’s about to discover that no matter how far you run, love can find you anywhere.

Our Review

This is one of the sweetest, tenderest, most heartfelt, touching, moving books I have ever read. Skye was finally going to follow a dream she has had for years to backpack across Europe, the timing wasn't good for some. Mainly her mother and the fiance she left behind. At the last minute her friend has to go home. Skye decides to stay and fulfill her dream. Standing in the station trying to decide where to begin her journey, a journey to find herself again, she meets Asher and the story begins. 

This book is a journey of honoring lost loved ones, finding your courage, enjoying life, and falling in love. Skye and Asher end up taking this journey together. Asher is backpacking across Europe in honor of his brother and as they travel he opens up more to Skye as she does with him. He is tender and gentle and kind with Skye something she is not used to. And she finds herself falling for him even as she fights it. 

The banter and playfulness between them is so fun to read and Asher is just down right charming, whitty, caring, calming, friendly, sweet and tender and all of that wrapped up into one hot bundle of a man. He takes Skye on the backpack journey of a lifetime and before they know it, earlier than expected their time comes to an end. She stands there at the train station watching him leave her heart broken. She was in love and didn't tell him. 

But OMG that video - you have to read the book I wont spoil it, OMG the video I had huge alligator tears, you need tissue for this moment. Oh and for her arrival back to the states you will need them then to. She is heading home to the lionesses den (mother dearest) but what is waiting for her.....
I gave this book 5 Hearts it is by far one of the best contemporary romance novels I have ever read. J Meyers has outdone herself. I am a huge fan of her writing and have read every single one of her books. Her Young Adult Paranormal are truly amazing pieces of work. Her step into this genre is sealed with this book. Well done.
